Coalition affirms commitment to RET as is

The Coalition has no intention to alter the level of the RET, but it’s subject to recommendations from the Climate Change Authority, the party's climate change spokesperson Greg Hunt tells Climate Spectator. He also hints at a key change to the Direct Action plan.

Climate Spectator caught up with Greg Hunt, the Coalition’s spokesperson for climate change this week to ask a series of questions around its policies for support of renewables, energy efficiency and carbon capture and storage.

The interview was not intended to touch on its broader Direct Action Emissions Reduction Fund, although he made some interesting comments on how it will employ a reverse auction mechanism rather than grant tendering.
